    Hi.

    I don't understand why you keep deleting your threads. You of course are welcome here, but it would be nice if you left your threads for other people to see as well. Just because you got an id on a plant that you were looking for, if you delete the thread after you get it, then the next person that may be looking for that ID will not be able to benefit from getting that ID.

    I was going to restore your ebay thread, but then decided against it. It is your prerogative to delete it if you wish, I just don't get it.

    wow, that is rude. I cant believe that you deleted a thread with so many replies. I think that I will be changing the ability to do that now.

    This forum is not in the habit of deleting threads, at all. I'm disappointed that you saw fit to delete yours. So what if a few people didn't agree with what you said or believe? That's what makes this the Best forum I know, we are all responsible adults and we all take responsibility for our words and actions.
    I'm sorry you deleted that thread.

    The post you deleted was a fun thread and we were having a good time talking about old times....we were not bickering at all :confused:

    Marni if the originator of a thread deletes it, it's gone in its entirety

    But you're not deleted. Only your posts are.
